IE8 "no addons"
vERY GRATEFUL IF ANYONE CAN FIX THIS FOR ME AND EVERYONE.
after re-installing the OS Internet explorer 8 installed but an orange bar runns accross the pages over the information bar area in the administrators' account from which all the updates etc were installed;
IT READS "U R RUNNING WITH NO ADDONS-GIVES 3 OPTIONS-"MANAGE ADDONS,DELETE, INSTALL" NONE OF WHICH FIXIT; IN sTART MENU IT SAYS "IE-nO ADDONS"
WENT ON mICROSOFT COMMUNITY TRIED EVERYTHING.
iS THERE A QUICK FIX?
iF NOT, CAN i DELETE THIS ADMIN UNUSEABLE ACCOUNT?
oR SHALL i NOT USE IT?
It does not appear in my other admin account or my limited account-but nor did most of the updates!
now they arrived however unable to use the admin account with the orange bar
Is this when you go to Start | All Programs? Normally there is a shortcut for Internet Explorer there.
thanks mucho Joe-Simply deleted that account and no problems with IE in remaining 2 accounts.
thanks v much Bruce yes I'd tried those fixes - and more-nothing worked so deleted that account and my 2 remaining accounts run with a normal IE - the password on that account changed itself 3 times, plus there were increasing oddities..-maybe it was spyware -whatever! deleting the account worked!
